A Declaration of Financial Independence

By: Josh Gilliam

Americans design lifestyles and build financial plans around these "ideas" without realizing oppression lies just beneath their surface-a tyranny far worse than the British Crown ever stamped on us. By exploring the causes and the destructive effects of excess, A Declaration of Financial Independence is a rallying cry for preserving our sacred freedoms. It empowers the reader with a Biblical perspective for financial decision-making and reveals the secret of contentment in an age of unprecedented-but often unfulfilling-wealth. This one-of-a-kind composition is principled, clever and instructive the lives of the less fortunate.This book will help us on that journey."

Fearless: A Journey to Financial Peace

By: N.M. Elliot

After finding her brother dead from a financially motivated suicide, this gripping story shows one womans journey from her haunting financial past to financial hope. I harbored my own financial distress and secrets just like my brother. I knew that I needed to tell my husband about our own descending financial situation. The dread was back with its baneful eyes piercing my soul. I was utterly lost, and I needed to find a way out.
Money pervades all aspects of our lives; however, our past pervades all areas of our money. I was already married with a family when I found out how my childhood fears influenced my financial decisions. Looking back I remember my father as a mans man. Standing at six foot four, he was an imposing figure. He had a narcissistic personality which both attracted people to him and made people fear him. As a child, each evening when the sound of my fathers footsteps reached our front porch, one of us children would yell, Run! Katherine Paterson, national ambassador for Young Peoples Literature, said that a childs heart is a resilient thing. Bend in out of shape and it bends back but rough it up too much and it develops ruts. My heart had developed deep ruts, and for most of my life when I felt fear, I ran. This is a book about how I stopped running.
